Nitrix from BSN is our featured nitric oxide pill. Typically, we’re into the powdered drinks, as they’re usually a better deal and pack more punch for less money. But there’s a bunch of good reasons to go with nitric oxide pills:
- Convenience – No messy powders, you can easily bring them to work, etc.
- If you don’t want to be bloated with water like some other drinks will make you, you can take it to avoid that.
- There’s no awful taste. Some people just can’t handle the artificial flavoring of other nitric oxide supplements.
- You can modify your dosages and pop a few here and there all day long – for a constant pump!
So those are the benefits of nitric oxide pills, but why do we choose it? It comes down to value and ingredient selection.
In every three tablets of Nitrix, you get 3g of the pump complex, and 1.5g of everything else, which mainly consists of creatine and beta alanine, two things we constantly rave about on this site. So is a 3 tablet dosage going to get you a ferocious pump and energy in the gym like Jack3d or SuperPump 250 would? No. But can this be used to keep you rock solid all day long? Yes!
Nitrix Stacking – Taking the Pump Even Further
And can it safely be used alongside other pre-workout supplements like Jack3d to insanely magnify the pump? Hell yes – that’s one of the most beautiful things about this amazing NO booster!
We love our caffeine-based pre-workout, but Nitrix has none. In our case here, that’s a good thing. Often times, we want more pump and vascularity, but don’t want to get too “cracked out” on energy by taking the maximum of 3 scoops of Jack3d or SuperPump to get there. Nitrix makes the perfect add-on, and it can be taken later in the evening when you’d like to get a nice little rock-solid feeling before heading out without an insane amount of caffeine (ie. take a few of these pills, do 100 pushups or pullups, shower up, and hit the streets feeling that much more stoked).
If you need caffeine pre-workout, buy some caffeine pills on the cheap alongside it, perhaps even some 1,3 dimethylamylamine to go with that. But for the rest of the day, you don’t need to be popping caffeine pills all day long and losing sleep – best of both worlds!
The directions state to take 3 tablets, 3 times a day, always on an empty stomach. If you’re over 200lbs, you can take 4 tablets 3 times a day. With Nitrix BSN has made sure that you are are getting your pump safely. It has been around forever and there are no Nitrix side effects.
